Youmans used interactive CD-ROMs as learning tools in the Philosophy, Art and Culture course he taught, while giving his pupils assignments in Internet research that included setting up their own World Wide Web sites. He also helped in the creation of a student Web page at the school.
"This is where I hope to make my mark in the teaching profession," said Youmans, who is mulling a career as an educational technology consultant once he finishes work on his doctorate. "The award was a welcome acknowledgment that technology is not just toys and games, but has real educational value."
At SOE, Youmans has set up a Web page for eight student teachers whose field-work he is overseeing as a graduate assistant supervisor in the Office of Practicum Experiences.
